Berlin, where Jackii will become a starving artist and eventually die (happy)

Long story short, Berlin rules. The seniors (all 5 of us) took a 4-5 day trip to attend a few trade shows and fashion shows during Berlin Fashion Week. We went to Bread & Butter, which is my favorite trade show so far, as well as Premium and..an eco-show I can't remember the name of right now. We ended up having one of the last days free, which was realllly nice. I used it to check out the Dali museum and the Ramones museum! I also did a little bit of shopping- not too much because I left my wallet in a cab the first day- but the stores were really tiny & really cool.

P.S. I need to separate these because I have so many pictures. This is the first 2-3 days. I'll post the Ramones and Dali museums next.

So, I like the weird stuff. Typewriter hat.

It was cold. I wore Moon Boots. Everywhere.

Ron Galella exhibit- I can't say I condone paparazzi so I wasn't sure about it. But another exhibit inside was VERY intense. I was really moved by the photographer's work: Gundula Schulze Eldowy.

Free At Last

I am free at last from the chains of 7th semester work (only to be imprisoned once more in 2 weeks. The dreaded 8th semester!!!) 

I'm only being a tiny bit dramatic, & I'm not even dreading starting class again- just really happy to have a little time off. Actually, this whole semester will be dedicated to my final collection which I haven't talked about all that much in this blog, but it's inspired by insects. Enough about me! I have so many pictures that need to go up here. I got back from Berlin yesterday, & have some really sweet images, but I'm a little backlogged. SO! You're gonna have to wait for those bad boys. Here's the catch up from before I left for Germany:

 We all went out last last weekend for Isadora's b-day

We all know my dream is actually food photography

I come home from one of the busiest days Isadora & I have had all year, and she is standing in the kitchen making these little savory pastries. So amazing.


The finished product!

Next up: Berlin

Happy New Year!

I wonder how many posts are titled "Happy New Year!" in the blogosphere.

I had a really amazing time in Amsterdam, but I am now back in Milano. One week of school, then to Berlin! I'm really embarrassed to say this, but I didn't take one picture on New Year's Eve. So wild.. outside looked like a battle field with smoke everywhere- it was really the most fun. Had the nicest dinner at a friend's house (which just so happens to be a historical building in Amsterdam, & is also the coolest house ever), and then around midnight the coffee shop across the canal set off something like 100,000 fireworks. 

While I cannot prove any of this because I am a bad person who forgets to carry a camera, some other cool stuff was captured during the rest of my trip. Including cake pops (sadly, looked amazing, tasted DISGUSTING).
